Add an option to map names and emails to their canonical forms via a
.mailmap file. This is enabled by default, consistent with the behavior
of Git itself.

This works, but needs some polish. The read_mailmap code is not
particularly clever.

I'm quite far from an expert in gitweb, but this seems like a good
feature to have.

Having a separate implementation to read and apply mailmaps makes me
worried that it will behave slightly differently than the C code,
especially around corner cases. Is it possible for us to ask git
programs that are called by gitweb to do the conversion for us (e.g.,
by passing "--use-mailmap" or using "%aE" and "%aN" formatters)?
I won't be surprised if the answer is "no, we access commits using
lower-level plumbing". But it's worth looking into, I think, if you
didn't already.

I briefly looked at tweaking "rev-list --header" but because it ends
up calling pretty.c::pp_header() for obvious reasons since we are
doing as little processing as possible in CMIT_FMT_RAW format, we do
not get to pretty.c::pp_user_info() which is where the mailmap
conversion happens for the normal "log" output.

It is tempting to split pp_user_info() into two parts (i.e. the
first few lines up to where map_user() is optionally called, and the
remainder), so that the CMIT_FMT_RAW users can optionally ask for
mailmap to kick in, but I doubt that it is worth it, if the only
potential benefitter is gitweb (which I consider is purely
maintenance mode---I am surprised the world hasn't yet switched to
gitiles, cgit and others).

No code changes. I just fixed a typo in the commit subject (made "map"
lower-case).

Is this setting global or per-repository? (I ask because documentation
for other options in this section document whether they can be set
per-repository.)

Should there be any sort of support for functionality similar to the
"mailmap.file" and "mailmap.blob" configuration options in Git itself?
(Genuine question, not a demand for you to implement such support.)

Am I reading this correctly that this will die if the project does not
have a .mailmap file? If so, that seems like harsh behavior since
there are many projects in the wild lacking a .mailmap file.

> +       return \%mailmap if eof $fd;

If the .mailmap has no content, then the 'foreach' loop won't be
entered, which means the early 'return' above it is unneeded, correct?
(Not necessarily asking for the early 'return' to be removed, but more
a case of checking that I'm understanding the logic.)

The first regex is intended to handle a trailing "# comment", whereas
the second regex is for lines lacking a comment, correct? However,
because neither of these expressions are anchored, the second regex
will match both types of lines, thus the first regex is redundant. I'm
guessing, therefore, that your intent was actually to anchor the
expressions, perhaps like this:

    if (/^\s* (.*)\s+ <([^<>]+)>\s+ ((?:.*\s+)? <[^<>]+>) (?:\s+\#)/x ||
        /^\s* (.*)\s+ <([^<>]+)>\s+ ((?:.*\s+)? <[^<>]+>) \s*$/x) {

Also, if you're matching lines of the form:

    name1 <email1> [optional-name] <email2>

in which you expect to see "name1", then is the loose "(.*)\s+"
desirable? Shouldn't it be tighter "(.+)\s+"? For instance:

    if (/^\s* (.+)\s+ <([^<>]+)>\s+ ((?:.*\s+)? <[^<>]+>) (?:\s+\#)/x ||
        /^\s* (.+)\s+ <([^<>]+)>\s+ ((?:.*\s+)? <[^<>]+>) \s*$/x) {

> +                       $mailmap{$3} = ();

I wonder if you should be doing some sort of whitespace normalization
on $3 before using it as a hash key. For instance, if someone has a
.mailmap that looks like this (where I've used "." to represent
space):

    name1.<email1>.name2...<email2>

then $3 will have three spaces between 'name2' and '<email2>' when
used as a key, and that won't match later when you construct a "name
<email>" key later in map_author() with a single space.

Same comment as above about anchoring these patterns...

Global. I'll add a note that it cannot be set per-project, or I could
add support for setting it per-project if that's wanted.

Yes, that would be useful and should probably be supported.

No, this error message is misleading. The die_error is called if there
is a problem executing git cat-file, but not if cat-file returns an
error. I'll revise this message to be more accurate.

The early return is intended to catch when there is no mailmap, so $fd
does not get initialized. Without it, you would get an error when you
try to split $fd's content:

    Use of uninitialized value $fd in split at [the foreach]

Yes, I hadn't considered that case.

If it's not much extra work, it might make sense to support
per-project, if for no other reason, to be consistent with other
nearby options.

I don't insist upon it. It can always be added later if someone needs
it. I was asking about it now because it might have an affect on the
design or type of value which the 'mailmap' option you added above can
accept, and I was concerned about getting locked into a design without
taking these other possibilities into account. For instance, rather
than being a simple boolean, perhaps the 'mailmap' option you added
could be more expressive, eventually allowing support for an explicit
file or blob. This is another reason why I asked if 'mailmap' can be
per-project, since an explicit mailmap file, and especially a blob,
would belong to a particular project. It's just something to think
about. (Then again, I'm not a gitweb user, nor am I familiar with its
configuration, so take my observations with a grain of salt.)

Right. This follows from my misunderstanding what happened if .mailmap
was missing.

There was a little discussion in response to v1 on whether we could
reuse the existing C mailmap code:

  https://lore.kernel.org/git/20200731010129.GD240563@coredump.intra.peff.net/

Did you have any thoughts on that?

I think it's probably not worth the effort to make the necessary changes
to "rev-list --header" Junio mentioned, just for gitweb.

I agree it's a bit worrisome to have a second parser that could
potentially behave slightly differently than the main implementation.
What if we added tests for gitweb's mailmap parsing based on the same
cases used for Git itself?

Another option which people probably won't like is to have gitweb
start "git check-mailmap --stdin" in the background, leave it running,
and just feed it author/commit info as needed and read back its
replies. The benefit is that you get the .mailmap parsing and
resolution built into Git itself without needing any extra
parsing/resolution Perl code or tests. The downside is that people
might balk at an extra process hanging around for the duration of
gitweb itself. (You could also start up "git check-mailmap" repeatedly
on-demand, but that would probably be too slow and resource intensive
for real-world use.)

Yeah, I agree that probably doesn't make sense to change "rev-list
--header". I wonder if git could be using "rev-list --format" instead,
though, and asking for the specific things it wants. That could improve
more than just this case, too (e.g., the C code would be parsing and
normalizing author/committer idents, which could make handling of badly
formatted ones more consistent with other Git tools).

It may be a big change, though. I don't know the gitweb code very well.

That would certainly help, though I don't know how easy it would be to
replicate all of the tests in a maintainable way.

Fwiw, there's already a GPL-2.0 Perl .mailmap parser in
scripts/get_maintainer.pl of the Linux kernel which Joe
maintains:

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/tree/scripts/get_maintainer.pl

Been thinking about adding mailmap support to public-inbox in
the send-email reply instructions, too.  (but public-inbox is
AGPL-3+, so I can't steal the code w/o permission)

That's probably fine IMHO; especially if it's just for gitweb display
(and not writing anything that's meant to be stored forever).

There's already dozens of different parsers for email addresses,
MIME, mailbox formats, etc. all with slightly different edge cases;
things still mostly work well enough to not be a huge problem.
(Same goes for Markdown, HTML, formats and even JSON :x)

Might be different behavior, dunno.

Florian Mickler wrote most of that and I
believe I rewrote it a bit, mostly for style.

If the perl code is useful to you, do what
you will with it, I give you my permission.

I don't believe get_maintainer needs to be
changed unless it's shown to be different
than what git does already.  I think it's
the same output.
